Lol no doesn't involve bitcoin at least not from my perspective. Although gearing up the capability to mine crypto would be on the horizon but certainly not as an intent.

Anyway if somebody on medium he frequents could prod him - feel free to lie and say it involves bitcoin. I mean people lying when bitcoin is the subject is almost the ritual

Have you Okes even met Thor?
He is a very lekker guy
Ive had lunch with him twice before, Feb last year and April 2019
And he does not drink beer and prefers milkshakes
I dont judge
Really nice guy
Only thing that I know that's wrong with him is he is a Capetownian.

LOL
He is a lekker lunch and I got nothing out of him, no freebies
Except he did give me R1.00 airtime
Can't remember what it was but I gave him my number and boom just like that on his phone he was able to give me airtime without me even telling him who my operator was. That's like serious voodoo stuff, he is a clever genius

When you buy airtime on FNB for a phone number it automatically selects the ISP. FNB is a genius.

That sounds backwards. Don't they know about flashing lights and stuff?
Speaking of which, @biometrics, had a discussion the other day - friends saying it's a load of bollocks and that I'm being screwed at every angle. People are not giving me a chance or they don't want to go the extra paperwork for the health and safety of the workplace.

I had a video call with a local deaf british woman who has a business teaching others BSL (British Sign Language), she told me I was right to come to her because of everything I've told her, she said it is so wrong how I've been treated in the workplace. She also emphasized on the importance of having a sign language interpreter in the workplace as it makes things so much easier and people are then not able to take advantage of me. She has a really good point.

I got an offer to move across the country to do support work with a deaf-blind lady who I've known since I was 11 years old - we both went to the same school. Out of a few of her friends in the UK, she picked me because she felt comfortable with me and we know each other very well. So she's offering to pay me and I live in with her.

So I am in the process of packing up my stuff, waiting for moving companies to come back to me with a quote for some of my personal effects to be shipped over as my car is too small for all of my stuff. I was also a bit surprised when I contacted my dad to discuss this move and he said it is up to me, it's my life now and that I got to do what I feel is best. He also said that my parents are not allowed to travel out of SA at the moment so I think I'm gonna get the car eventually and wanting to cancel the cellphone contracts, having asked him to let me know when so I can take over my cellphone contract and keep my number.

At this point, I am doing what I feel is right because I'm tired of struggling with jobs and tired of people taking advantage of me. It will be good for me to be closer to the deaf community and well I'll have company every day plus a whole lot of other benefits - I just received my free bus pass, going to apply for my disabled rail card and once I'm settled in with my friend, she will help me get my free London travel pass as well. I think in overall, it's not going to be bad.

I feel like I've wasted 2 years of my time with the wrong people when I should have been with my friends in the first place and gotten somewhere.

No, it took you this amount of time to learn what you need to do, everything happens for a reason
well it would have saved me a lot of time and money if my friend had helped me like he agreed - he passed away end of July from cancer and I then got into contact with another friend who told me everything I needed to know. He never even told her that I was in the UK from the start. She was shocked and so was I, I thought he'd have told her but he didn't.

He sounds like me. He gave me advice once when I was in a very dark place. I'd very much like to meet him one day.
